After years of calling to “defund the police,” Democrats are now seeing the consequences of their actions firsthand.
According to a report from CBS, “homicides in major cities ticked up in 2021, with a 5% increase from 2020 and a 44% increase over 2019.” And 559 people were murdered in Philadelphia in 2021 — the most in city history.
But, Matt Cartwright refused to condemn dangerous calls to defund the police.
“Anti-law enforcement politicians like Matt Cartwright are the reason crime has gone through the roof,” said CLF Press Secretary Cally Perkins. “As long as Matt Cartwright remains in Congress, criminals will go free, police will be hampered from doing their jobs and Pennsylvanians will fear for their safety.”
